Sales I've seen

Recommended Posts

 I remember seeing this one under construction about the time I was building my Cozy IV.  N654EZ    http://www.aviationdb.com/Aviation/Aircraft/6/N654EZ.shtm    Builder built some interesting intakes and I took a pic (#4).  He lost his medical and had to sell.  It was well built and has had a nice cockpit upgrade since those days.  I copied the gray paint and his nose-shape on the EZ I built.  🙂    I figure a good EZ can be had for $40-45K then add $20K in avionics so the price seems ambitious.

Steve Velovsek built that airplane (who happened to be Wayne Hicks' hangar mate).  I recall seeing his airplane just months/weeks away from first flight and being utterly impressed.   Dug up these old pictures from 2005.  Gorgeous airplane is right!

This is a little more like it :  An older EZ, N3223P, (you can tell by the P-51 scoop) but priced about right.  http://www.aviationdb.com/Aviation/Aircraft/3/N3223P.shtm    I am not a fan of the silver paint, though.  It seems to add about 15 deg to the skin temperature  https://www.canardzone.com/forums/topic/31195-its-been-12-years-since-someone-started-a-can-i-paint-it-x-thread/?do=findComment&comment=59015    I suppose the surface temp will stay below the Tg but why heat up a plastic airplane?  See p. 12 here  http://www.cozybuilders.org/Oshkosh_Presentations/2006_EpoxyDoDonts.pdf

An interesting project in California (where else?)  🙂  In an age of pre-punched and molded kits, it's interesting to see a one-off like this.  (from Barnstormers)

Very unique!  Looks like a good starting place for a sim cockpit.  I sure wouldn't want to be in the air in it!

A flying Long-EZ for $25k... This looks like an excellent deal in NC... this one still available?  For an extra $10k it could have new upholstery, new G3X panel, ADS-B.... wow.... I should have bought instead of built!!

But where would be the fun in that?

OK, this is a potentially very good deal. Once my airplane is done (on Tuesday) picking up an airframe like this and upgrading it could be a fun next project!

Good catch.  For reference, the EZ above is N675JL   https://registry.faa.gov/aircraftinquiry/NNum_Results.aspx?NNumbertxt=675JL  Being sold by the builder's son, it appears.

I know of two EZs near me that are languishing.  One is almost new, has been sitting nearly four years.  The builder is a friend but he didn't even finish Phase I.  I talk to him a lot and say "Let's get that baby back in the air" but so far, no go.  Another EZ was bought by a biz-jet pilot, I flew him over to the western part of the state to see it.  It was a pretty good airplane but non-flying after the builder/owner died, the biz-jet pilot trucked it home 4-5 years ago but has never flown it.    Last I heard, he was trying to get someone to put it together and get it flying for him.    People!  😞

Hopefully I'll be editing this space with some details soon, but a friend of mine from my time in Quebec is selling his beautiful Cozy III, C-GDSB. He had a few ads up for a while, but mostly in French-language or Canadian/Quebec specific publications. All I can remember off the top of my head is that it's got an O-320, Catto 3 blade with nickel leading edges, dual EFIS/EMS.

I'd buy it myself, but I need every spare cent to get my Cozy IV build done, and I'm afraid that my wife will definitely enforce her threatened "Plane to Pony ratio" if I get a third plane!

More to follow.

No takers on the quiz, eh?      Just posted: this Quickie north of Atlanta   https://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/avo/d/demorest-new-quickie-airplane-kit/6873120820.html   More pics in the ad.

Quote

This is a new complete Quickie airplane kit that comes with everything you need to put it together completely minus the covering and a few other small parts! It comes with clear plexiglass canopy, fuselage, wheels, tires, tubes, propeller with mount, throttle control wires with handle, styrofoam for wings, landing gear, exhaust pipes, fresh new Onan original engine still bolted to bottom of crate it came in, assembly videos with manuals, monthly newsletters which contain tons of examples and information from other builders/owners from 1985-1993(3 full binders of Quickie monthly newsletters) This airplane won all types of awards at Osh Kosh and Sun N Fun air shows and is a fast little airplane with little fuel burn! It was designed by a famous aircraft designer so it is a very well designed airplane! Get your self up and flying for the low cost of $3,500 which is only the cost of the engine! It’s like your getting the rest for free!

Bonus feature:  Interesting discussion of a Super Quickie with a Rotax 503.  52 hp versus the 18 hp Onan.  http://jdfinley.com/file-downloads/quickie-aircraft-documents/   Alternatively, you could try the jet version but that one has had mixed results.     https://youtu.be/QnJBMYC8ReA  Nah, I think I will let this one pass me by.  🙂00808_9xocXLPOx8y_1200x900.jpg

Now that is funny!

Clean plans are available at www.quickheads.com  I much more like the idea of running a Rotax on this, but Onan's were the standard for the original Quickies way back.

This Lightspeed ignition today on Ebay.  I really like mine.  The bids did not meet his reserve the first time so I imagine he has lowered his reserve to the $2K to $2.5K range.  A pretty good buy if it goes for that.  Item # 123752945416 if you are interested.

Saw this "Open eze" on a FB page.  N871CG     Said to be for sale at $35K with overhauled O-290 (50 hrs) and about 150 hrs airframe.  You will have to call the owner for more details.  Wow, Jon, someone is actually building from the Open-EZ plans, huh?

https://registry.faa.gov/AircraftInquiry/NNum_Results.aspx?NNumbertxt=871CG

added:  I see a Clyde Lee Baker age 71 at that address.  Still has a medical but he might be aging out.  https://amsrvs.registry.faa.gov/airmeninquiry/Main.aspx

Just call me "Super Sleuth".  🙂

Wow!!!  I figure those that are building Open-EZs register as Long-EZs, which -- based on a recent discussion on the Cozy Builders list -- would make sense for insurance purposes.  Regardless, this is quite interesting.  The timing is good too as I am halfway into the Open-EZ Revision 6 update.

The FAA registration also brings up a few pet peeves of mine:

  1. It's 'Long-EZ', not LongEz, LoneEze, Long Eze, etc.  Long-EZ.
  2. It's VariEze, with the same points to be made.
  3. EZ and Eze are pronounced as if you were to pronounce the letters 'E' and 'Z' individually, or "easy" as a shortcut.

</rant>

Awesome find Kent!

Here's a tip worth repeating:  You can google-search a particular website by using the syntax "site:craigslist.org long-ez" (leave off the quotes).  I saw this California EZ project today with that.  The workmanship looks very good.  Don't let the dark-colored epoxy bother you; Ez-Poxy does that after a while.  The centerspar was placed in the wrong orientation for the pic.  Comes with lots of do-dads; the price is reasonable, I think.  Left hand stick?  It can moved.

Or imagine you're in a Cozy where a left-hand stick is standard (unless you fly from the right seat).

The canard may be a GU so just build a new one if need be.  Looks like a great buy!

Or add VGs or turb tape to the existing one. Much easier!

No Reserve!  This Texas Cozy project on Ebay.  https://www.ebay.com/itm/Cozy-Mark-IV-Aircraft-Project/202673159561?    Here is his website  http://www.ez.org/pages/mattstecher/index.html  It looks very nice.  The only thing I would question are his fuselage antennae which are oriented for 3/9 o'clock.  He probably has $4-$5K in materials, not to mention 300-400 hrs labor.

The Lightspeed Plasma III mentioned above did not meet the reserve.  High bid $1075.  Ebay is good for a quick sale but I think you do better having a little patience on Barnstormers.

Saw this one pop up on the Pilots of America forum.  A gentleman that has terminal cancer donated his project to an EAA chapter in Georgia.  Here's his description.  

Quote

Our EAA Chapter had a Long-EZ donated by a gentleman that has terminal cancer. Our job now is to sell it. I'm looking for some idea of its worth. From what we can glean, it hasn't been flown since 1988 or there about. Not entirely sure as to what engine is on it, but it has not been run either. Engine TT is over 2100 hours. Personally, I don't expect we can get much for it at all, just not sure what range it would be in.

 

 

Not much to go on but if someone's interested I'm sure I can get the contact info
